The top also features a large double bow collar and elbow-length sleeves that are tacked up in the back to give them the effect of being pushed up. Sketch also includes a detailed view of one eyelet, as well as a partial view of a matching navy wool coat and the back of the ensemble worn without the coat. Model wears a breton hat with flower embellishment and is depicted holding a lit cigarette.
